The bike looks great in black, is that the exhaust exiting just in front of the rear wheel?

Good work on the race wins too.

Thanks, guys! Specially my mentor and role model, Taffy.
Specially fun to keep up with a Pami-tuned 725cc BMW on the straights. Even more fun to win in front of that bike!

Yes, it is my very short exhaust that exits just below the left footrest. Total length (from exhaust valve seat to where the muffler starts) is appr 715mm.

Thanks also to SwedishSteel (Patrik) for putting in some late hours to help me out in the preps.

Excellent!, any idea how much your bike weights, just out of interest?

It weights about 105kg with carbon fairings. I have no figure with current glassfibre fairings, but I have also made new lighter radiators, so I guess it's +/- 0 kg. Carbon wheels would have been nice, taking off some of the unsprung weight and reducing the gyro effect. It would also reduce the weight of the wallet substantially!

This weekend was second round in the Nordic Supermono Cup. We visited Norway and the nice track VÃ¥ler. I managed to win the Saturday race and ended second on Sunday. On the Sunday race my muffler cracked open and I lost power, I spread "wool" all over the place! I was wistleing all the 700km back home!

I passed the 3rd round, which was held in the north of Norway, 1650km one way from home! After that round I was still leading the cup, but only with 6 points. So I went to Linköping for the 4th round (race 7 and 8 ). I have never felt comfortable with that track, and it has allways been a struggle to do decent laptimes. I guess this time everything came out of the ketchup bottle! First I got pole, then I won 2 races AND set new lap record for Supermono´s!!!

Now people in the pits are going from: "Is Husaberg not breaking down all the time?", to more recent: "Fook'n ell! It's fast! The others look like they've parked."

I'll get back to you, Taffy, shortly!
